    Some day I will get there. I heard that NY City has 15 or so of snow.
    Good way to stay warm with MeetUp - enjoy.

    The idea was good but the outcome was so-so in my opinion: 1) not enough name tags; 2) music way too loud and we couldn't hear ourselves; 3) some dis-junction with the other members because simply we didn't spot them due to the fact that there were other groups as well. It seems that someone had someone else in the Museum and wanted to return that person a favor by bringing so many customers at once. Sorry if I offended anybody, but I spoke my mind. And one more thing: what's with older men hesitating to connect with women their age? They are plain ridiculous.

    The museum was very hot and a little uncomfortable. So I left early. Next time guys. Good atmosphere!

    The museum was elegant and a learning experience. I actually came home and conducted geographical research on India and South East Asia. I really enjoyed the Allegory exhibit and the exhibit on Prayer Beads.
